Five New Club Members

In the last few weeks, we have joined up 5 new Bolognese lovers. Diane Johnson is from Fraserburgh, Aberdeenshire in Scotland and she already owns 2 Bolognese called Elmo who is 3 and a half years old and Otis, who is just 7-months.

Also hello to Caroline Moore from Somerset, who now has 4 Bolognese having recently taken on Millie & Macey who needed re-homing after their owner sadly passed away. Good job Caroline has a big garden!

Also just joined up is Justine Turner from South Yorkshire who is the owner of a much loved Bolognese. Sue Johnson from Merseyside is also a new member and she shows and breeds Bolognese. We can also welcome Mary Ledger from Durham who owns 2 Bolognese.

Great to have you all as members!

FOUNDER MEMBER Belstown Bolognese. I live with 3 Bolognese and live in Burgess Hill, West Sussex. I own 3 Bolognese and show the youngest Harry. I also work part time as a support worker. I originally chose the breed for my daughter to show as a Junior Handler, but she has grown up and number of dogs have grown too! I originally trained as a Veterinary Nurse, as well as managing large show/breeding/boarding & quarantine kennels. I progressed to the commercial sector in sales and marketing of pet products, including running my own PR agency for pet related companies. Along with a few other like minded enthusiasts, we started this club in August 2015 as we felt the breed needed an information centre and a friendly group where people could share their views and learn more about the breed, so I started The Bolognese Dog Club UK. I have bred 7 litters, but don't breed currently.
